In 2019, Christopher Ward released a collection in partnership with the UK Ministry of Defence. Each watch drew inspiration from various collectable timepieces that were actually commissioned by the British Armed Forces during the middle of the century. The collection was also recognized as one of the five brands around the world to be honored by the MoD, which for Christopher Ward, is pretty significant considering the brand calls the United Kingdom home. Today, Christopher Ward has announced the second series of their Military Collection, adding some of the brand’s current design language to the range of watches that still embody the reliability, durability, and preciseness of His Majesty’s Armed Forces.
The Military Collection comprises three watches – the C65 Sandhurst, the C65 Cranwell and the C65 Dartmouth, all of which in their second series form. Each watch in the collection sports some of the modern design touches from Christoper Ward including their signature spear-tip hour hand, a fully brushed hand set, and their double-flag logo. Each watch within the collection also houses a chronometer certified Sellita SW-200 paying homage to the military’s reliance on accurate time keeping in the field.
